If you ever find a suitable case for your Contempora, could you please inform everyone? I have 2 guys in my orchestra who have them and are suffering from carrying the very heavy original cases. They love the horns but not the combined weight!



Will do, for sure. After the comments here and a chat with Horn Guys didn't turn up any options, I'm looking twice at this Protec Max case to see if taking a hacksaw to the corner of the accessory container might work, without destroying the structural integrity of the case.

My other option is to try and get the latch hardware on the original case reinforced as that was the weak point I was worried about. 13yo is big and strong enough to haul it around - I just was worried about it popping open.

Scholars are quite confident that Grant did his own work and I'm sure both the Obamas will also. Note that the article is about both of their books.

One irony here is that those who are competent with the English language (native speakers or otherwise) recognize the extraordinarily obvious here--we're aware of the absurdity of suggesting there's any comparison between The Donald and Obama ... for multiple reasons, not just the obvious. Just suggesting the contrary is a pretty overt display of the Dunning-Kruger Effect.
Those of us who are competent native English speakers aren't likely to have any need of a dictionary in order to parse any of The Donald's speeches. That means his writers know not to use words beyond the sixth grade level with him (so he doesn't stumble over a 64 word and make it worse). He may change that, but he's not likely to see the need through his ego until well after his deficit has already been well established with those competent enough to notice the issue (i.e. a whole helluvalot of people). Pretty much every president before this cartoon one have fairly regularly thrown out words most people need to look up, most of them in their natural, impromptu speech--they don't gotta have writers to make 'em talk good (very very good writers for very very good talk). This is clearly not the case with The Donald (or should I say very very clearly).

The physical side of playing is the small part. The mental side is the big part.

Schilke 51 no longer for sale.

Large Shank Stork 5S is the last one left! Great piece, heavy blank, feels like the standard 5 just a little wider! It's in near mint condition.
$60 Shipped.

I will aske my tech to give it a threaded rod at some point.  In the meantime, I am going to try some fishing line!

You might like the fishing line better.  I don't recall seeing any (except my own) that still had the threaded rod even in the case.  I remember mine buzzed and vibrated sympathetically, depending on the notes going through the horn.  I kept it, in case I got a rash of fast switches for low B.  I sold the horn to one of my students in Sao Paulo before ever really needing the rod.

Careful bending of the rod can mitigate the buzz.  Adding chewing gum to strategic points can damp the sympathetic vibrations.

Maybe save the money, and just imagine the rod instead of having the tech set one up?  Evil

Hi again all, my original Reynolds case was wood shell and was in great shape on the outside, the internals didn't work very well. As stated, the case was a surprise gift; there were no other choices at the time so I have done no research of what is out there in the way of cases. This Protec case is really heavy with this horn and 2 mouthpieces. I think would be very heavy for a teenager. It is very heavy for me but I am a tall, skinny guy. So, probably better cases out there than mine, but it works for me; wish my original case was like yours.

Feel free to place the photos back here if you like but probably not useful. Do inform us if you find better. My pix to you in about an hour or so, ElShaddai.

Cheers, JP
